Cue the Lee Greenwood song... I rocked the vote!

Cue the Lee Greenwood song..." I am proud to be an American" because today I was a responsible citizen and VOTED! My man even voted early, due to another obligation today. As I was watching the Today Show this morning... I got a bit emotional as I watched Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and John McCain all cast their vote. It is an amazing thing! I am a History Major (AKA history NERD) and I have the utmost respect for all the people in our own history that have sacrificed and even died for the opportunity to vote- not to mention those people in other countries that would love to have a say in their government. I am proud to wear my little " I VOTED" sticker today. So... if you are reading this and haven't voted yet...DO IT! I am happy to be a part of history being made today... either way- Obama= first African American or Sarah Palin= first woman V.P. It is a win/win situation.

I rocked the vote too! It's a great feeling of pride and in some cases...persuasion.

I rocked the vote too! It was funny... we are poll watchers this year... and as we headed to get in the car for a list of the 1st voters my hubby realized he had lost his "I voted" sticker. He had to go back in and look for it before he would go... yep, we are all PROUD voters today!!!

I am so glad that I have the freedom to make a choice. I am so glad that I live in this country. I also voted today and I wear my sticker proudly!

Too bad my heart breaks tonight..

I just think of all those little souls who will miss out because of a man who thinks it is ok to kill a baby.
